Grammy Awards show cuts to commercial break in midst of Drake's speech

      Once again, Drake has become a major topic of conversation over tonight's Grammy Awards.

      And it wasn't only because he actually showed up to pick up his award for Best Rap Song for "God's Plan", something he hasn't done in the past.

      No, this time it was because of his speech.

      "If there's people out there who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain, in the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don't need this right here, I promise you," Drake said. "You already won."

      At that point, the show switched to a commercial before he was finished speaking.

      Some took Drake's remarks as a sign of him dissing the awards.

      Stop the presses! Drake shows up at the Grammys but the show cut to a commercial after he started speaking.

      Drake wasn't expected to appear after he refused the producer's offer last week to appear on-stage with Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino.

      Gambino, a.k.a. Donald Glover, didn't show up to pick up two of the biggest prizes—Song of the Year and Record of the Year for "This Is America".

      And the Best Pop Duo/Grop Performance went to Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper for their Star Is Born duet "Shallow".

      Guess what? Cooper also wasn't in attendance.

      In her acceptance speech, Lady Gaga talked about how proud she was to make a movie focusing on mental health.
